Evolving technologies, globalization, and changing business models have increased the need for greater focus on the challenges of designing and implementing effective internal controls that adapt to these changing conditions. This course offers a unique opportunity to develop an expertise in designing, implementing, and conducting an effective internal control system through self-paced learning and live classroom training.

This 25.5 CPE credit program takes you through the COSO Internal Control—Integrated Framework using real-world scenarios.

The COSO Internal Control Certificate Workshop had its inaugural run at IMA Global Headquarters in April 2016 and featured seminars by industry-leading experts.
